Conclusion:
It took a lot of debate on my part to decide how to rate this game. Initially I was disappointed by the overall lack of polish in the app. The UI could use some work and the choice of BSW for Online Multiplayer is a little strange. Overall, Kingdom Builder could be a huge success with the weight of its popularity and awards behind it, however, due to the lack of polish, it may have trouble gaining wide appeal. However, I still find myself enjoying the game. I am a fan of Kindgom Builder and it is great to be able to play this more often against competent AI. Most board and strategy gamers will enjoy this, but it does have its rough edges.


Rating: 4/5 Rough edges but still enjoy playing.
